Deb Helquist is an Adult Basic Education instructor at Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College's Rice Lake campus.

She has worked with a wide range of students in terms of ages, abilities and environments from pre-K through post secondary. Deb has also been closely involved with students of high risk, gifted and talented and many with exceptional education needs who work and learn best in an alternative environment or mode.

In her spare time, Deb enjoys the combination of everyday simple (and not so simple) pleasures and studies, usually involving people — all under the descriptive title of one of her favorite movies: “It’s a Wonderful Life”.  That’s how she feels and lives in the midst of the joys and sorrows of the here, now, and future.

"I love teaching because I positively know that each individual, younger and older, inherently possesses great hope and potential. And I cherish opportunities to unlock and uncover that beauty and ability." - Deb Helquist
